Is Kristen Stewart or Robert Pattinson the actual woman behind the famous red carpet couple? It’s hard to tell sometimes, thanks to the infamous “fog of war” that surrounds these types of celebrity couples. But while there are numerous differences between the two, there are several areas where they absolutely match up. Here are six things you should know about the Twilight stars.

They’re Both Actors

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are both actors, which makes them even more similar. But whereas Stewart focused on movie roles in her early career, Pattinson mostly did TV work, and even starred in a few TV movies. However, he is certainly no stranger to the big screen, having appeared in such classics as Batman, Tristan + Isolde, and House of Gucci. What’s more is Stewart has stated in the past that she prefers to focus on acting, and has less interest in directing. So it’s safe to assume that even if she hasn’t taken on many film roles in recent years, she’s still acting on a regular basis.

They Adore The Artistry Of Great British Artists

One of the things that sets Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson apart is their distinct appreciation for British artistry. The Twilight stars are both huge fans of British theater and film, and it’s definitely visible in their collection of antiques and vintage items. In fact, they’ve both been quoted as saying that they’d love to open a London gallery one day. It seems that Stewart and Pattinson both appreciate the more traditional works of the great British artists, and don’t mind spending their hard-earned cash on them. So if you want to buy a present for a loved one, or need some inspiration for your next Halloween costume, take a look at some of the greatest British artists’ work.

They Share A Common Interest In Vampires

If vampires are your thing then you’ll definitely want to check out Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. For years they’ve both been associated with the vampire genre, and have both played major roles in several major motion pictures (i.e. the Twilight Saga). In addition to their interest in vampires, Stewart and Pattinson also share a love for classic literature and mythology. It’s no surprise that they enjoy retelling mythological stories through literature, and have been quoted as saying that they “always want[ed] to be vampires.” If you’re interested in literature or just want to be able to relate to their characters, you can look up some of their best quotes and study them alongside some of the greatest vampires’ literature.

They’ve Both Been In The News In The Past For Alleged Crimes

It’s no secret that Hollywood is full of crazy, scandalous, and just plain weird stories. If you want to know more, just click here and be prepared to lose hours of your life. But although Hollywood is notorious for its tabloid scandals, Stewart and Pattinson maintain a relatively clean image, at least in comparison to other Hollywood couples. They’ve both been in the news in the past for alleged crimes, but in both instances the charges were eventually dropped or never led to conviction. In 2014, Stewart was accused of felony hit and run after she allegedly tried to evade police by running over an officer’s foot with her Mercedes. The following year, it was reported that the 48-year-old actress was being investigated for allegedly assaulting a British woman in separate incidents in 2004 and 2013. Both of those cases were eventually closed without any charges being filed. While it’s not always a good idea to trust celebrities because they can sometimes be found on the wrong side of the law, in both instances it seems that Stewart did nothing wrong and was the victim of overzealous police work. It’s also important to note that although both have had brushes with the law, neither of them have actually been convicted of a crime.

They Have An Unusual Way Of Spinning Bad Energy Into Good

When it comes to celebrity scandals you might expect that two people so closely linked to a billion-dollar franchise would be racking up some serious dirt, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. In most instances it seems like Stewart and Pattinson have a lot of good energy, and find away of turning bad situations into good ones. For example, when Stewart’s father passed away she used the occasion as an opportunity to promote her clothing brand, and didn’t hesitate to show up to the funeral in a barely-there black dress. When the paparazzi rushed to take pictures of her, she reportedly lost her temper and began shoving and screaming at the photographers. Later that day she penned an apology on Facebook, explaining that she was upset because she didn’t want to be the center of attention at her father’s funeral. She continued, “I was just so angry because I didn’t want to be remembered for the way they made me out to be. I was only ever a daughter who loved her father and tried to protect him.” Nowadays Stewart mostly keeps to herself and avoids the press, but still makes appearances at charity events and art openings, which is something she enjoys doing because it allows her to be “brave and honest.”

They Want To Be Left Alone.

After all these years playing partners and lovers in the Twilight series, it’s no wonder that Stewart and Pattinson want to be left alone. The scandals that surrounded their previous relationships didn’t end with their split from Bella Swan. Back in 2010, Stewart was involved in a serious car accident that nearly killed her. The following year she checked into a Paris hospital for anxiety and depression after cheating on Pattinson with her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson. (Yes, that one.) Since then she’s been quite vocal about not wanting to be in a relationship, and instead wants to focus on her career. Although Stewart has had several boyfriends and slept with several other men, she always mentions Pattinson when asked about her previous relationships. In a 2014 interview Stewart stated, “I kind of always talk about my exes in interviews as an example of what not to do. Like, don’t do this. But I also kind of always talk about my exes in interviews as an example of what not to do… Don’t cheat on your fiancee. Don’t do that. Don’t do anything that might make Bella angry.” It seems that Stewart, who is Catholic, believes that Catholics should not have sex before marriage, and that cheating on your partner is a bad idea. So it’s safe to assume that even if she isn’t quite ready to admit it, she still has feelings for Pattinson.
